Tax Preparation Pricing – Individuals and Businesses

Affordable Tax Return Preparation for:
Individuals & Businesses
Income Tax Returns are our specialty! Every Tax Preparer is either a CPA an EA, or both. We are price-competitive, personable and approachable tax professionals.

We offer top-drawer service at reasonable feesOur existing clients appreciate having the same CPA they know on a first-name basis prepare their tax returns annually rather than gambling on finding a new tax preparer each year.

Our new clients come to appreciate that our being available to answer questions and offer solid tax advice all year — rather than a few months during tax time — is very helpful. Our clients have tax questions arise throughout the year about events in their lives that might have costly tax consequences and call upon us regularly. We are here — all year…

For example, a big purchase like a home or investment property will certainly have tax consequences. Many of our sole proprietor clients chose to incorporate each year to take advantage of risk aversion and a better tax-savings strategy and will call upon us to advise and assist them to accomplish their goal. We think you’ll agree that a CPA in your corner will make tax time less stressful while saving you money that you legally do not owe.

Many of our clients are business owners – and they have tax returns and tax filings to prepare monthly or quarterly. As year-round tax professionals, we do not vanish between “tax seasons”.


PRICING: Individual Tax Return (Single Person, Married filing Jointly, Sole Proprietor)

$  50 – 1040-EZ – Tax return Preparation prices begin at for a basic 1040EZ return.$ 150 – 1040-A – If your tax return is a bit more complex than a 1040-EZ, it probably falls into the 1040-A category. Many taxpayers who have various types of income, such as retirement or interest income, in addition to regular wages, but do not have personal deductions, would qualify to file form 1040-A.

$ 205 – Itemized Individual Tax Return – Our base rate for a simple itemized individual tax return is $205. This would include mortgage write off, tax write off, charitable and medical. Other tax forms such as credits and deductions would add some extra (but small affordable fees) to the base cost based on time and complexity.

$ 200.00 up – Self Employed Sole Proprietors’ Tax Return –who will be required to file a ‘Schedule C’ is $200.00 and up. The ‘and up” caveat is necessary because some self-employed, sole-proprietor’s Schedule ‘C’s can be extremely extensive and time-consuming.

$ 205 to $ 250 – Family Tax Return Package – for an Average, Married, Affluent Tax Paying Family (filing a joint return) which includes the Federal IRS tax return and the local State of California Tax Return.

EXAMPLE: Consider a recent average, married, affluent Yorba Linda family – they own a home with mortgage and mortgage interest deduction, multiple dependents including minor children and a college-age young adult living at home who has a part-time job, dual incomes for the husband and wife, investment income, lots of deductions. They require a basic basic Income Tax Return INCLUDING a couple of add-on tax forms to cover some of their reporting complexities. They will leave our office with a bill totalling, on average, between $205 to $250.NOTE: If the parents or student – want us to also address the college student’s IRS and California tax returns, we can process his or her 1040-EZ (California & IRS) which would add another $50. Most working college students end up receiving a tax refund.


PRICING: Business Tax Return (C Corporations, S Corporations, Partnerships, LLCs, Trusts)

$ 200.00 up – Self Employed Sole Proprietors’ Tax Return –who will be required to file a ‘Schedule C’ is $200.00 and up.

Average Time to Complete Your Tax Return – as it turns out, our average tax return client needing a basic return, leaves our office with their return 90% complete. Later that day or the following day, the client will find the missing paperwork, or review their finances to better tally some missing income or find some new and legal deductions. When found they call, fax or email the missing data to us. We add the missing data. The tax return is now 100% complete and we immediately email a “DRAFT” PDF copy of the IRS and State returns to our client for their review and approval. If all is correct and acceptable, our client signs off and either (1) agrees to allow us to e-file their returns with the IRS and Franchise Tax Board immediately, or (2) elects to print the PDF tax returns at their home or office to mail the tax returns into the tax authorities via snail mail or FedEx.


tax refund checkWe don’t nickle-and-dime our clients with extra fees. We desire long-term relationships.

We don’t charge extra fees for e-file, postage, printing or extraneous services you don’t need. We will not attempt try to sell you high-interest “refund advance loan” that will cost you hundreds of dollars for getting money a week early. If you are due a refund, the typical IRS wait is averaging 7-10 days for an E-File Direct-Deposit refund; and only 7-14 days for that green U.S. Treasury check to arrive via snail mail.

We are serious, professional CPAs and tax professionals. We like what we do. Most importantly, we thoroughly enjoy meeting new clients and catching up every year with our existing clients.
